Mexican Fiesta Decorated Cookies

These Mexican Fiesta Decorated Cookies would add a “sweet” and colorful touch to any Mexican themed party!

I was inspired to create this fun set after my recent Mexican Riviera Cruise with Princess Cruises.

During one of our shore days, in Mazalan, Mexico, I spent some time in a large open air market, filled with shops selling everything from fruits and vegetables to clothing, candy, pinatas, and colorful trinkets of all sorts!

I came across a table filled with brightly painted trinket boxes and instantly knew I needed to “cookie” them!

Yes, in this case “cookie” is a verb… meaning, to bring an idea to life using cookies and icing!

PIN IT NOW to save for later!
